Naomi Fagot, 94, formerly of Lexington, Nebraska

Naomi Fagot, 94, formerly of Lexington, Nebraska, passed away on Thursday, September 1, 2022, at the Cozad Community Hospital.

She was born on October 30, 1927, in Cozad, Nebraska to Ralph and Hazel (VanHoosen) Johnson. Naomi received her education at Cozad High School where she joined the cheerleading squad and was voted high school sweetheart by her peers. Naomi graduated from Cozad High School with the class of 1945.

On September 30, 1946, Naomi was united in marriage to Warren Fagot in Lexington. To this union, the couple were blessed with five children: Randal, Linda, Pam, Scott and Shane. The family made their home in Lexington, Nebraska where Naomi focused her efforts on caring for the home and raising her children. Naomi began working in the late 70’s and early 80’s working at Knudsen’s Jewelry and would later work at Frosts in downtown Lexington. Warren passed away on July 18, 1989.

Naomi had a great love for sports and was quite active. She loved following her children during their school activities to cheer them on and would eventually watch her grandchildren’s school activities as well. She was a big fan of snow skiing and would often take skiing trips with her close friends. Naomi enjoyed doing water aerobics with a group called The Mermaids, and afterwards, taking a trip down to the McDonald’s for a coffee and a chat. She enjoyed gambling and even hit a jackpot a few times. In her later years, Naomi would spend her time playing dominoes and cards at Shackley and on Monday nights, she could be found at Kirk’s having dinner with her friends.

Along with her parents, Naomi was preceded in death by her husband, Warren; her brother, Stephen Johnson; sisters, Nadine Jobman and Sharon Norton; her daughter, Linda Fagot; daughters-in-law, Candace and Diane, and great-great granddaughter, Katelynn Koubek.
